Children like to make things, and I like to keep them and turn them into art which I can hang around the house. To that end, I keep the plastic packaging from other items I buy and use them for projects such as this.
To make this ornament you will need:
Now that you have your supplies together, you are ready to craft.
Find a piece of plastic which was saved from other items you have bought and trim it to size. The size should be the same as the picture or you can cut one or the other to size.
Place the plastic over the artwork and duct tape around the edge to make a frame by using strips of duct tape. Cover the back completely with tape, so no paper is showing. It will make the ornament more sturdy. It is a good idea to glue the frame part of the duct tape down for better adherence to the piece of plastic.
When you have finished taping the back of the ornament, write the date on the back. I just put the year. It is fun to know when this was made, if you don't know the date, just put a message, such as, created with love by yourself and the child's name, and the present year.
Punch a hole at the top of the ornament. Tie a piece of yarn or ribbon through the hole to use as a hanger. Hang in a prominent place so everyone can see your ornament.
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 1 art picture ornament
